What Drives

What Drives


We're passionate about creating and supporting sustainable entrepreneurs on the African continent. Since 2013 Matoyana has interacted with over 1000 entrepreneurs though various projects and initiatives.

We provide personalized support which is tailored to meet our client’s business needs. We take time to delve into and understand the client’s business and organization. We are able to relate to small business and we tailor our services to meet their needs because we recognize that they have limited resources and often, great potential
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” # Steve Jobs

“Let’s go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday” # Steve Jobs

"I worked with Nokwazi. I highly recommend her as a business plan facilitator . She's quite skilled and will walk with you through each step . You will learn a lot from her, I did. My business plan was amongst the recommended by the panel."

Mhleni Kubeka, Managing Director

Makolobane Farming Enterprises

"My first impression of Nokwazi was one of a focused professional who genuinely wants to assist. Her expertise and understanding in the subject matter of how to compile a business plan is astounding. Even though she knew very little about my industry she was still able to show me how to focus my thinking around the importance on creating an effective business plan that best describes my objective and caters directly to my audience. I recommend Nokwazi to any business as she is an intelligent and pleasant businesswoman, she would be a great asset to have on any team."
